Phil Hughes was superb on Tuesday night as the Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 6-4.  Hughes pitched 8 shutout innings allowing only six hits, he stuck out four and only walked one. This was a great bounce back game for Hughes who was shelled for 4 home runs on June 20th against the Atlanta Braves.

Offensively, the Yankees got on the board early with an RBI single by Chris Stewart and a 2 run RBI single by Curtis Granderson in the bottom of the 2nd. Mark Teixeria would help add on to the lead with a sac fly that would score Granderson in the bottom of the 5th. Alex Rodriguez would blast a second deck Home Run in the bottom of the 7th and Stewart would add one more run with a sac fly scoring Swisher in the bottom of the 8th.

Cleveland would make it interesting in the bottom of the 9th scoring 4 runs including a 3 run blast by Jose Lopez off of Cory Wade. Rafael Soriano would take over and save it for the Yankees for the win.

A very interesting play happened in the top of the 7th when Dewayne Wise would fall into the stands in an attempt to catch a foul ball. It was called by the umpires that he did catch the ball, but replays showed another story. The hitter Jack Hannahan would argue with the umpire over the call and be thrown out of the game.

The Yankees look for the sweep on Wednesday afternoon as Andy Pettitte will take the mound for the Yankees up against Ubaldo Jimenez for the Tribe. You can catch all the action on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio. Pre-game kicks off at 12:30, with the first pitch at 1:05.
